At IMATS as mentioned in my 'IMATS Toronto Experience' blog, there was a huge Nyx section. I was in dyer need of more Jumbo Eye Pencils so that is where I headed first. While checking them out, I spotted their Studio/ Crystal Liquid Liners, which once I saw them knew I should try.
For more pictures, swatches and pricing follow the link below...
Jumbo Eye Pencil: Eyeshadow and eyeliner all in one with creamy easy to blend formula that glides on like silk and lasts all day. Also works great as a base for eyeshadow. Reg $5.99
Studio/ Crystal Liquid Liner: Highly pigmented, thin brushed, liquid liner provides precise, bold, intense matte or sparkling colour. Reg $7.50
When it came to Nyx Jumbo Pencils I got myself a refill of my favorite, and most used color, Milk. I also got a very light blue called Baby Blue (606) & a dark, almost black called Slate (615). I have used all three colors and love them all equally. Milk is awesome for right under your brow bone and the inner corners of your eyes. It works as a great, bright base for your highlight. Baby Blue looks great if you use it as a base, and apply white shadow on top of it. It shines through the white and gives a muted blue color. I used slate as a quick and easy base for smokey eyes. All colors blend out very easily, and allow color to be applied on top of them. **Must have for my makeup kit.***
When I got to the liquid liners I basically went with the first thing that jumped out at me. I had never used Nyx liquid liners before so anything I picked was trial and error. The first shade that jumped out at me was was a bright blue called Extreme Blue (01). The next shade I went with was a matte deep purple called Extreme Plum Purple (12). The next liner is actually a Crystal Liquid Liner called Crystal Gold (01). All liners work very well, and last all day. The only minor problem I have run into is dry time, which is just a matter of Patience. It does however take 30 seconds - 1 min so it is a little long. I really like the tips of the liner wands. They are tiny little brushes, not those form sponge tips.
